Hello Denver

I have relocated to the great city of Denver, Colorado.  New York, I miss you terribly.  But kind of like I miss Chicago – it was time to go.  And here I sit, pregnant again (yes, pregnant again) in my house (yes, house), looking at the unknown of my future as a performer and I feel excited.

I have my 3rd show here tonight, Wednesday, Feb 8th.  It’s at the Celtic Taven on Blake Street.  See you there, suckers.

THREASE IS BACK!!

Back by popular demand, Grease 3: Threase (the show I wrote with Katherine Bryant Flaherty) is running Friday nights in February at the PIT’s new and amazing space at 123 East 24th Street, NYC.  We have 3 new cast members, a bunch of new jokes and the same ridiculous show that ran so well in October.  Get your tickets here:  http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/127892

Here is a clip from the last production.  In this song, “What’s Under There,” Mandy, the foreign exchange student from Pakghanistan, arrives in Mr. Grady’s science class and is harassed through song by the T-Boners and Pink Labias of Schmydell High.  Enjoy:

I have a kid. (no way) Way.

Hello there.  On November 18th, we had a kid.  She’s rad.  I am tired.  Her name is Georgia Mae.

I was performing up until the week before she was born.  It was pretty difficult, but I was lucky to have been a part of some great shows so I didn’t mind dragging my big pregnant self and my guitar around the city too much.  She wasn’t due until December 1st, but on November 17th, I took a really long, and rather uncomfortable walk across town, thinking to myself the whole way “This is my last walk.”  I expected the next 2 weeks to be filled with watching movies on the couch and indulging in ice cream binges while I anxiously awaited her arrival.  But at midnight that night – sploosh – and the rest is history.  I will say that I was probably the least graceful woman in childbirth ever.  But 9 hours of labor later, I had this cool little chick in my arms…

I did a show at the Jalopy Theatre in Brooklyn on December 17th – it was my first night back and although I felt terribly guilty leaving her, I had an awesome time being me again.  Looking forward to finding out what 2011 has in store for me as a performer and mom.  Should be an interesting journey.  Stay tuned…
